Minnesota Crisis Between Protester And Policemen
Police fire tear gas at protesters in a second night of demonstrations after Minnesota officer terribly shoots Black man.
Police fired tear gas and stun grenades on Monday night as a crowd gathered to protest the killing of a Black man by a police officer in a Minneapolis suburb.
Protesters were "launching bottles, fireworks, bricks and other projectiles at public safety officials," according to a tweet from Operation Safety Net (OSN), a joint effort of local entities to ensure the safety of the public during the trial of Derek Chauvin, being held about 10 miles away from the location in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota.
It was the second night of protests after 20-year-old Daunte Wright was killed by a police officer, identified by authorities as Officer Kim Potter, during a routine traffic stop. A curfew was in effect for Brooklyn Center and police arrested those in violation who ignored dispersal orders, according to Minnesota Operation Safety Net.
